1927 guide to Ramsgate out today aka Ramsgate Sunspot of the South


My 167th publication out today it even has a supplement in French – well two of the sixty or so pages are in French, the rest fortunately are in English.

Obviously if you live locally you can visit my bookshop here in Ramsgate (closed Thursdays and Sundays) if not you can buy it online by clicking on this link http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/ramsgate_the_sunspot_of_the_south_1927.htm

These local guidebooks with pictures and advertisements are a useful tool for the local historian.

Anyway here are some sample pages, even one in French.



















Here are the pictures of the other books that went out for sale in my bookshop today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/evacuation-of-children-in-bookshop.html I wonder do the books people buy tell us something about Ramsgate?

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
